Diary of a Wimpy Kid Wiki

Jeffrey Swanson is a boy in Greg Heffley's grade who appears in Old School. He is one of Greg's cabin-mates who stays at Hardscrabble Farms for one week.

Jeffrey is one of the boys who jump during the trust-fall activity. His group's chaperone, Robert Jefferson, shows everyone how to make a net with their arms to catch whoever jumps. When Jeffrey jumps and falls, his weight makes Rowley Jefferson and Gareth Grimes collapse and smash into each other. One of Gareth's teeth ends up missing until a cabin-mate named Emilio Mendoza finds it stuck in Rowley's forehead.

When Greg uses Emilio Mendoza's glasses to start a fire, he forgets to return his glasses to him. He and Jeffrey then high-five, smashing the glasses in between their hands but Jeffrey wears glasses too so they did not really care about it except that Emilio is blind as a bat when he is not wearing his glasses.

During the raid on the girls' cabins for deodorants, Jeffrey gives a piggy-back ride to Emilio Mendoza, since Emilio cannot see correctly without his glasses, and carefully steps into Mr. Nuzzi's footprints during the raid when Mr. Nuzzi covers the area around there cabin with baby powder and leaves his own footprints. Everyone in Jeffrey's group walks in the footprints of Mr. Nuzzi so no one could tell they had left, by using Mr. Jefferson's boots that closely matched Mr. Nuzzi's footprints.[1]
